Eunha So releases beautiful, personal album
(Published: June 12, 2020)

Eunha So is far from being your average composer. This talented musician loves to use sound as a way to express her feelings, going for a deeper emotional twist that connect with listeners on a deeper level.

In 2019, the New York-based artist and pianist managed to release a fantastic study record named Reminiscence. The beautiful title of this release hints at the personal overtones of these songs, which are all connected with personal hopes, dreams, memories, and other suggestive ideas, which are so universally relate to. Eunha's melodic sensibilities are quite vocal, as in the piano parts are extremely articulate and vividly personal, almost like a sentence, or a poem, but instead of using words and rhymes necessarily, Eunha lets the sounds of her amazing playing tell the rest of the story.

The opening track immediately sets the mood, not only showcasing the artist's compositional characteristic, but also the understated and elegant sonic aesthetics that drive the songs on this beautiful album release. "Swings' Starlight" is timeless, dynamic and edgy, yet incredibly soothing and atmospheric, revealing the many nuances in Eunha's amazing playing. The song "5 AM Blues" follows along the same lines, but it explores a more traditional feel. "Moving Castle" follows right after, and this song is one of the highlights on the album, particularly showcasing Eunha's musical dexterity.

The set list goes on with "Donna Lee," The articulate sound of Eunha's piano fits well with the brushed snare and the subtle dynamics of a great drum performance, perfectly enhancing the artist's colorful composition. The song "Shadows" offers a more minimalistic vibe, with a darker, moodier arrangement and an atmospheric feel. I love how the prominent sound of the ride cymbal accompanies the lead melodies, and the piano offers a lot of amazing texture, without necessarily undertaking a leading role throughout the entire song. The song features a minimalist introduction, before diving into a more complex arrangement down the line. The song "My Romance" has a timeless feel, which almost reminds me of some of those "golden age" recordings, which defined the sounds of jazz piano. In addition to that, the last song, "Red Rocks at Night" is a perfect closing number, being yet another showcase of the artist's incredible talent.

"Dream Hopper" is a melodic composition that takes the album somewhere else.
